Provisions of the Wisconsin FMLA
The Wisconsin FMLA (W-FMLA) applies to private and public employers with at least 50 individuals on a permanent basis who have worked at least 1000 hours for the employer in the preceding 52 consecutive weeks.
The W-FMLA, unlike the FMLA, does not require the employers to perform their work on the employer’s site or within any specified number of miles from its location. During a 12-month period, the W-FMLA provides an employee with six weeks of leave for a birth or adoption; two weeks for serious health condition of parent, step-parent, child or spouse; or two weeks for Employee’s serious health condition.
The W-FMLA limits an employee to no more than eight weeks of leave annually for any combination of covered reasons. Job reinstatement rights are protected as under the federal law.
Filing Deadline Wisconsin FMLA
Complaining employees who bring claims under the Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Act must file their claims within 30 days of the employer’s violation. An investigation and hearing shall be conducted within 60 days from filing of the complaint.
